Stayed for dinner, B&B and it was simply stunning. The restaurant has an incredible view over the harbour and the incredible food is probably the only thing that could stop you looking! The fish, as you might expect, is delicious but the flavours take it to an even higher level.The service is friendly and relaxed which is perfect for a... More

My wife and I have just taken advantage of Rocksalt's Winter Warmer Special Offer of set three-course dinner, overnight accommodation in one of the Rocksalt Rooms and cooked breakfast. We were met by the manager on arrival and taken to our accommodation, just a few metres from the restaurant. Fresh milk was provided for the coffee and tea facilities in... More

We went down to Folkestone on a deal with this restaurant where we stayed in their rooms just across the road. Having enjoyed Mark Sargent's cooking at Claridge's we looked forward to trying what we thought was his restaurant with his food from his kitchen. But it appears he's rarely - if ever in the kitchen, contrary to what the... More

Stayed over at RockSalt, very pleasant. Rooms are tiny but lovely and well thought out. Great shower. Heavy fire doors make it noisy as other visitors did not think to hold them to close, they just slam. If you are below rooms make a note that there are no carpets and it can, once again, be noisy. We had a... More

Having never been to Folkestone, but always having wanted to visit Rocksalt the restaurant, my partner and I were delighted to find out that they also had rooms, so booked one for a weekend break. The room was bijou, but very well appointed, with a nice wet shower room, and a very comfortable bed. Even better was the fact that... More

We've stayed at the Rocksalt rooms three times now and have loved it each visit. This time we were upgraded to the sea view top floor room which has an airy vaulted ceiling, really comfy bed and gorgeous exposed brickwork. For a couple for one night it's perfect for us - just a 1 minute stroll from the restaurant means... More

Situated above the Rocksalt chip shop, there is always the scent of chip fat hovering around what are beautiful rooms. The decor is contemporary rustic and the beds are wonderfully comfortable, but the smell lets it down (despite the plug in room fragrance in each room) and therefore I couldn't give it full marks. Breakfast is great! But my husband... More

The rooms we stayed in (a double and single - suite for up to 3 people) was beautifully designed and lovely to look at. We stayed for one night, so finding somewhere to put our clothes wasn't an issue but if we had wanted to hang things up/put them away or if there had been three of us, it would... More

We stayed at the Rocksalt Rooms one very windy January night. The room (kittens, I think) was cosy enough - a little big for us, but nonetheless cosy. Unfortunately they are above a fish and chip shop, with the slight smell of grease that comes with that territory. For the most part they've managed to mask this with various scents.... More

Had a night in one of the 4 rooms at Rocksalt in Folkstone. Really lovely place. Had a harbour view. Sadly Folkstone is a shabby old place but Rocksalt is in a very different league. Right on the harbour. Beautifully decorated. Small but very chic and boutiquey. Very friendly staff and great food in the restaurant. We had their winter... More
